Founders Mosaic Promise IPA

This 5.5% ABV and 55 IBU India Pale Ale is from Founders Brewing of Grand Rapids, Michigan. It takes its name from its main ingredients, Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt.

The beer pours a deep golden in color. There is ample carbonation, and nearly an inch of white foamy head. The aroma is big tropical fruits, with lots of mango, and also a pleasant muskiness. The taste follows the aromas, putting big tropical fruit, mango and muskiness over perfectly toasted malt. The finish is dry, and moderately to strongly bitter. The beer drinks refreshing, smooth, but with a good bite to the carbonation as well. This beer is a burst of flavors and a real joy to drink.
